Sven Badzak death: Boy, 16, is third person to be charged with murder after aspiring lawyer fatally stabbed

September 17, 2021

­­A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder after an aspiring lawyer was stabbed to death in northwest London in February.

The teenager is accused of the murder of Sven Badzak, 22, in Kilburn and the attempted murder of a 16-year-old boy.

The suspect, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is due to appear at Willesden Magistrates' Court today.

He is the third person to be charged over the incident.

Shiroh Ambersley, 21, from Wembley, and Rashid Gedel, 20, from Ilford, east London, both denied murder at the Old Bailey in June.

The pair have been remanded in custody ahead of a trial at the same court on July 18 next year.

Six other males, aged between 17 and 23, have been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

The victims were allegedly chased and attacked by a group of young men.

Mr Badzak, from Maida Hill, west London, was repeatedly stabbed on 6 February after falling to the ground while the 16-year-old boy also suffered multiple stab injuries but was able to escape into a shop.

Anybody with information relating to this investigation should call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 5580/06Feb.

Or they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
